can you have toooooo many pics?????

oh well you just have to have the lot.............I finished the binding while in town and had to stay in for a meeting so it was getting late when I headed home.........remembering I had to take photos for the SAL girls  (AND the sun is disappearing) I was keeping an eye out for a fence without barb wire or a nice log not in burrs to take some photos............
without the commitment I made to the SAL girls and having the Stitch-a-long blog this quilt would not have happened..........
they have been a great support............some times questioning my progress too (which I needed)
I didn't think this quilt would happen in August...........
We started the SAL and all was good and then life went in a wrong direction and it took til September and Janice coming to visit to get back into it.......I had started but not progressed far.......I knew I had been pushing Janice along and I had planned to work on the SAL while she was here.......then i got right into it......addicted..........lol......so most of my quilt was done in 1 month................
a huge thanks to Betty my quilt fairy for fitting the quilt in such a short space of time..........
...I just love what she has done............

close up in sections.........
my layout got changed a bit........
the 4th and 5th rows are swapped as I had a problem with the fabric i used in the chook shed block and I was running out of time to unpick so moved the rows around...........perfect fix..........
the colours in a couple of photos are a little off.......was getting too dark............
a wheat paddock in the distance nearly ready for harvest............
and just one more photo just because I liked it.............
with about 2.5hrs to go (my time) the SAL girls can enjoy a quite peaceful rest from me.......
